I have not heard any news about the Carpathia since the anouncement that she had been found-does anyone know of any plans to explore the wreck/release pictures of it or whatever?

About all I've so much as heard was that the location of the wreck was known, but no photos have been made public. After taking hits from three torpedos, I doubt there's that much left beyond twisted junk littering the bottom.

If somebody knows otherwise, I'd be glad to see it.

Cordially,

Jason, thanks for the link. I don't have the Quicktime player to veiw the vidio...yet. Remember the computer problems I mentioned? Stuff won't install for some reason, so I'm going to have to get something done about it. I'll keep this link handy though.

Cordially,

But seriously Mike- I will call John Chisholm tomorrow and ASK- and if that fails, I am cheeky enough to call Clive Cussler at home and bug him.Where's Dirk Pitt when you need him?

Oh yeah, Dirk Pitt to the rescue...of anything that needs rescuing, no matter how big or even bigger! Obviously I don't know the Capathia's condition, but you can't help but wonder that given her smaller size and shallower depth, if she might be re-joining us one day as a Titanic-linked wreck.

That Numa link above has some nice Carpathia video if you have RealPlayer. I sent email to the PR guy for an update- maybe somebody will soon respond.

I'd be happy to see some good photos that I could just click on and see full size. I haven't had the best of luck with media players lately.

I don't suppose they have some good drawings and topographical maps of the wrecksite, do they?

Cordially,

My impression is that they are keeping most of their work pretty quiet. They intend to make a documentary in the "Sea Hunters series. I suppose that's fair enough, since all that work has to be paid for somehow. I guess we much watch the TV programs.

I'm none the wiser. It's mentioned on the site and I assumed it's something familiar to Americans.
